    O.K when my imac goes into sleep mode after about 10-15 min or so, every couple of minutes you can hear a "buzz" or "wurrr" sound from it. sorry about the poor choice or lack of words to describe the sound. I really do not know how to explain it. The sound almost reminds be of a car alarm trying to go off when the car battery is dead. Just wondering if this is normal or not. The imac is about 1 month old. thanks for any help

    Over there....
    my powermac g4 makes noises similar when in normal use sounds sort of like it is coming from the psu but could be a failing fan, of a loud fan
